There, soon, will be a website to help women abandoned by their NRI husbands. The Indian government will soon launch a centralised web portal which will be a storehouse of information on lawyers and NGOs working in this field and a list of dos and don’ts for them.

This decision was made in a three-member committee meeting comprising officials of the Ministry of Women and Child Development, the Ministry of External Affairs and the Ministry of Home Affairs. This is to help those women who have been deserted by men abroad and are struggling to get a divorce or seeking for alimony.

This committee was formed last year to address the issue after such complaints poured in, has taken a series of measures to protect the rights of these women, including providing financial aid of USD 3,000 in developed countries and US $2,000 in developing ones.

However, the committee felt that there was a need to set up a single-point redressal system, where such women can register their grievances, find help from civil society groups and are made aware of the institutionalised aid that they can get from the government of India.
